Yellow Rattle (Rhinanthus minor) Seeds

*** Fresh Seed From Crop 2020 *** An important addition to a wild meadow, and a surprisingly musical twist to any garden! Its 2-lipped golden blooms look like bells or singing birds paired with its large calyx, which when ripe produces a rattling sound in the breeze as the seeds jangle around inside. It’s a semi-parasitic plant which requires a few neighbours, particularly grasses and legumes, to reach its full potential, which also makes it an ideal watchdog to keep certain vigorous weeds in check.
